Today's milling

Recommended Posts

Milled this ash log from a crane job I took part in the other week. The base of the tree had quite a bit of decay but got cleaner further up. There was some beautiful rippling in some parts. 4 are for sale if anyone's interested.

Thankyou and yeah that's right my hobby has got out of control ha, I started off milling few small stuff with a chainsaw mill to make projects etc but there was so much wasted wood and noise, each cut your Binning 8mm where a bandsaw is 1.5-2mm max and on logs about foot diamiter milling at 1.25" boards it's far too much wast, so I wanted a bandsaw mill but I didn't have the room for one so I made that and it works grate, I keeped getting bigger logs now lol 32" oak is the biggest iv milled with it I think but you can also take the saw to the log and mill it. But iv got my own house now with some land so I am gona build a track for it in a few years and use it like a normal mill and if I ever need to take it anywhere to mill somthing i can.

Cool, upgraded to logosol?

Yeah big upgrades.
Logosol have sponsored me with an F2+.
And Rob.d (Chainsawbars.co.uk) has sponsored me with an 60" and an 80" panther mill.
After using a chillaskan for years, these new mill are such high end kit.
The logosol is great for dimensional timber and slabs up to 70cm wide and 3.8m long. Bloody useful.
The panther mills are such a step up from chillaskans.
Couldn't go back now.
The logosol and panthers are such wonderful pieces of engineering.
Until you put one together and use it, you don't appreciate the sheer amounts of effort put into them.
My hat off to the designers
